Google adds another Postini email feature to Google Apps

The plan is to eventually have all Postini functionality be native to Google Apps

Google Apps will soon gain an email routing and filtering feature from Google's Postini suite of email security services, part of an effort to eventually replicate all Postini functionality in Google Apps.

This latest feature will allow Apps customers to define routing rules for email messages sent to general, departmental inboxes, like those for sales and technical support, so that the appropriate individuals are alerted.

It's the latest Postini feature to become native functionality in Apps, the cloud-based email and collaboration suite for companies, schools and government agencies.

"As we look ahead to 2013, we'll continue these feature integrations and gradually transition Postini Google Message Security (GMS) and Google Message Discovery (GMD) customers to Google Apps. This will enable them to take advantage of the Postini features built directly into Google Apps that are more flexible, powerful and user-friendly," said Adam Dawes, an Apps product manager, in a blog post.

Google will offer more details about the Postini transition in the coming months, along with "tools and resources" to aid customers, according to Dawes.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
